1.Tommy Wingels is really becoming an inspirational leader for the San Jose Sharks with his consistent north-south physical brand of hockey. And he’s been wracking up the points lately too.
2.The Sharks still need to work on playing a full 60 minutes but the last two games have been impressive come from behind wins against the Flyers and Boston.
3.I think it is the responsibility of all players to do two of three things every game: win, lose, entertain! Considering they can’t win and lose in a single game, they do have to try and make the game entertaining for the paying fans at the game and others watching or listening. That Boston game was a blast too
4.How do you make a hockey game entertaining? Easy really, a good dose of energy, passion, speed, compete and skill. Voila!
5.Joe Thornton’s assist vs Boston was his 1,216th career point tying him with Jeremy Roenick and Larry Murphy for 40th all-time points in NHL history. Up next on the list is, hold your breath, Jean Beliveau who sits 39th all-time with 1,219 points.
6.I was at the Giants game when they lost to the Dodgers 17-0.
6.5 After that humbling loss I’m not sure any Giants fans were thinking about a third World Series title in five years. But that’s exactly what happened which is another reminder why all sports enthusiasts and fans should be continue to be passionate but ENJOY THE JOURNEY and realize that a single game does not determine how a team may fare in the in the long run.
